Bahka goes to prison

“It was a discord between person and circumstance by which a lion like him lay enmeshed in a net while many a common criminal wore a rajah’s crown.”   pg 94

This quote serves to point of how unfair the caste system is. It is saying how a good person like Bahka, described as a lion, can suffer under the “common criminals” that are randomly assigned to be the upper class. This quote shows more of the injustice within the social hierarchy.
